Jackie passed away at Manitou Lodge August 12, 2020 at the age of 93 years. She was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Ben; sons Ronnie and Wayne; and great grandson Riley; parents Jack and Lillian (Pearce) Milligan; brothers Gordon and Reg; sisters Irene, Dorothy, Shirley and Joan. Jackie is survived by daughter Sandra (Emmett); granddaughters Shari and Kris; grandsons Joey (Ashley) and D.J.; and great-granddaughter Evie; brothers Ken (Rose) and Cecil; sister Audrey (Ross); and many nieces and nephews and cousins. Jackie and Ben were married in 1944 and had two sons and one daughter. In 1952 they bought Patterson’s Place, later known as Holiday House, which they ran every summer till the 1980’s when it was sold. In the 60’s they went into business with Doc Launda in the Carlsbad Hotel, selling their interest in 1966. They lived in the summer at Manitou beach and winters in Saskatoon. In 1974 Ben, Jackie and Sandra moved to Empress, Alberta to manage the Border Hotel. They lived there until 1977, when they moved back to Saskatoon to work for Les and Irene Dube and ran the Greystone Motel, until 1984 when they retired. For one winter, in 1980-81, they lived in Medicine Hat. Jackie and Sandra worked at a Greenhouse, going home every day with sore stomachs from laughing. Jackie was an avid curler and especially enjoyed curling at the Nutana Curling Club. Ben and Jackie spent two winters in Empress, Alberta with Sandra (1987-88) where she worked for the T.D. Bank. Jackie and Sandra curled with two teacher friends of Sandra’s. They were known as the skirts and beat many all male teams. Jackie was a born entertainer; neither your plate nor glass was ever empty. She loved to host card parties and family and friends at dinners. Jackie and Ben loved to go dancing at Danceland and spending time at the Manitou Springs Resort pool and meeting people from all over the world. Jackie lived in her own home “Saskatchewan Lodge” until she entered Manitou Lodge in November of 2018. Jackie will be missed (especially her smile) by her family and all those who knew her. Due to COVID-19 restrictions a private family interment took place in the Watrous Cemetery. A Celebration of Jackie’s Life will take place at a later date. For those so wishing donations to the Manitou Lodge Activity Fund would be appreciated.
